Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia and a dental abscess.
In most cases, FCOD is diagnosed by reviewing clinical and radiographic information and data. Multiple quadrants and a mixture of sclerotic radiopaque lesions with radiolucent borders facilitate radiographic interpretation. FCOD is a self-limiting condition that requires no further treatment once a diagnosis has been made. Prognosis is excellent. Follow-up is needed to assess for progression and any possible complications. This should include periodic radiographic evaluation. If endodontic therapy is required, it should not be initiated until a thorough clinical and radiographic evaluation has been completed.
